2024 Annual MUI Stakeholders Meeting Summary

Ensuring safety is our top priority in the MUI Dept. To do that, our MUI team created a committee of people served, Summit DD staff, Agency Provider representatives (of varying sizes), Independent Providers, and guardians to discuss and review MUI data and trends from the previous year. This committee meets annually and looks for ways to curb any worrying trends and keep people safer.

On March 20, 2024, The Summit County MUI Stakeholders Committee met to discuss the MUI data and trends from the 2023 calendar year. Below are their findings.
